  • Each problem will be worth either 3, 10, 30 or 100 points, depending on the perceived difficulty - this may not correlate with personal difficulty!.

Sign up

To sign up to the competition, only one of your team members should enter details into this form .

No entry fee, no obligation, just sign up and then we'll send out emails with further information closer to the date.


The problems worth 3 and 10 points will have partial marks (If you pass some of the tests, you get some of the points).

The problems worth 30 and 100 points will not have partial marks (You need to pass all tests to get any marks). This is to discourage "gaming" the test cases, we only want to award efficient and general solutions.
